Burial might not be as aptly named as may initially appear. After a previous collaboration featuring Thom Yorke, and then providing the subject material for Context MC's 'Listening to Burial', you'd be forgiven for thinking that William Bevan's Burial alter-ego is less concerned with interring, and more interested in resuccitating. Certainly, any help he can give in resurrecting the fortunes of Massive Attack after the undeservedly poor showing of Heligoland will be welcome.
MASSIVE ATTACK VS BURIAL

• Iconic Acts Massive Attack & Burial Release New 2 Track 12”
• 180g Vinyl Housed In Hand Numbered, Screen Printed Sleeve Designed By Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja

The subject of prolonged rumour and intense speculation, Inhale Gold and The Vinyl Factory are proud to present Massive Attack’s long awaited collaboration with Burial, 4 Walls / Paradise Circus.
4 Walls / Paradise Circus will be available exclusively as limited vinyl edition of 1000 copies worldwide. Pressed on heavyweight 180g 12” vinyl housed in a stunning hand numbered, gold glitter screen-printed sleeve designed by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja (3D), this edition has been crafted by The Vinyl Factory, and is sure to become a highly coveted collectors item.
As you’d expect from these two acts these are no ordinary remixes and Burial has completely rebuilt both tracks in his own unique style providing a masterclass in production.
At around 12 minutes each both tracks have been given the time and space to evolve and develop going way beyond the scope of normal remixes, with the end result two highly original, in every sense of the word, pieces of music.
4 Walls will be streamed and available for pre-order exclusively from www.massiveattack.com and www.vfedtions.com from 5PM Monday 10th October and will receive it’s debut radio play later that evening on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.
